I've been teaching in several International Schools for a while, in fact for more years than I have in the UK, and wonder what it is that defines an "International Teacher." Some colleagues thought that just teaching overseas made them international, but I think there is more to it than that. I have worked with some teachers who were clearly not international in outlook, and some who were, but I am not sure what the criteria are. If we want to return to the UK to teach, there is a certain feeling that you have not been really teaching, and your experience counts less. Also, you are seen as "out of touch" with recent developments in education! There are many definitions of International Education, and also International Schools, but not one for the teachers working in them. Any comments?
